I'm a 27yr old female who got diagnosed with severe sleep
Apnoea Friday just gone. I have now been referred to the sleep disorder clinic in Easr Grinstead under Dr Venn (Has anyone been?). I've been told the referral could take 2 months or so, therefor until then when I will be given a CPAP machine, I can't drive and I have to continue struggling with being exhausted constantly. I have a very stressful job and I am under a
cardiologist for High BP (Tuesdays reading was 153/114) which we cannot control and think this is a side effect of the sleep apnoea.
My question is has anyone taken leave from work? I want to see if I can perhaps do a four day week and be signed off for the other day (pref a Wednesday so splits my week).
Any comments, suggestions or helpful tips to not feel so dreadful would be great.
